: Luke simply needs to learn to apply the same offensive principles he has excellently used to effectively used to teach the young guys to read and react offensively and apply them to teach them how to read and react defensively . Itís a mind set that must be based in principles and understanding defensively to help the young guys to read and react defensively as well.
Shaw and Luke were seen arguing in the 4th quarter of the Dallas game.
Judging by the lack of hedging on shooters coming off ballscreens, I'm wondering if Luke is overemphasizing analytics in his defensive schemes. Analytics state that in the NBA, shooting off of a ballscreen is a less effective than passing to the roll man. Luke may be telling his bigs to stay back to watch the roll man instead of hedging and relying on the help.
However the reason analytics show that shooting off a pick-n-roll is less desirable than passing to the roll man is quite simple. It's because NBA defenders usually hedge or at least stunt to make the dribbler think twice or prevent him from stepping into a three. Hope this isn't the reason for not hedging.
